Estratto: ... Qua, qua, qua, qua; io sono medico, io guarisco la gente da tutti i mali e da tutte le pazzie, fuori che da quella d'amore. Trotona sbalordita da questo portento non veduto mai in vita sua, grido sagrando come un vetturino: --Affennenio! che bel pasticcio. Lo voglio per me. Qua, Viso-sudicio: quanto ne chiedi?--Il solito prezzo, --ella disse--dormire nella sala degli Echi, e nient'altro.--Sta bene; e ti voglio dar per giunta anche questa moneta--disse Trotona, fuor di se dall'allegrezza di avere avuto il pasticcio. Fiorina se ne va via ringraziando, tutta contenta per la speranza che questa volta il Re avrebbe sentita la sua voce. Appena venne la notte, ella si fece condurre nella sala degli Echi, colla passione che la struggeva, che il cameriere mantenesse la parola e che, invece di dare al Re il solito oppio, gli mettesse innanzi qualche altra bevanda da tenerlo desto; quando pote figurarsi che tutti dormissero, ella ricomincio i sui pietosi lamenti: --A quanto pericolo non sono io andata incontro, --ella diceva--per venirti a cercare, mentre tu mi fuggi e vuoi sposare Trotona! Che t'ho io fatto, crudele, per scordarti cosi i tuoi giuramenti? Rammentati almeno qualche volta della tua metamorfosi, del mio amore e dei nostri teneri colloquj!--Ella ripete questi colloquj a uno a uno, e con tanta fedelta di memoria, da far vedere che per lei non c'era altra cosa al mondo, che le fosse piu cara di questi ricordi. Il Re non dormiva punto, e sentiva cosi distintamente la voce di Fiorina e tutte le sue parole, che non sapeva raccapezzarsi da dove venissero: ma il suo cuore, teneramente commosso, gli fece ricordare.

It's Future Job Day at Sam's school, and Sam knows exactly what he wants to be when he grows up-a zookeeper, just like Zookeeper Jake in his favorite picture book. His mother and big sister, Anastasia, help Sam create a memorable costume-so memorable that Sam insists on wearing it long after Future Job Day has passed and the rest of his classmates are back in their regular clothes. Encouraged by Mrs. Bennett, his teacher, Sam embarks on a lengthy project to teach his preschool class about a zookeeper's responsibilities, and along the way learns just how difficult a job teaching is. As always, the patient and loving Krupnik family stands by as Anastasia's irrepressible little brother struggles with a set of nearly impossible goals. Children will delight in this latest story featuring the precocious and irresistible Sam.
Ready for romance, thirteen-year-old Anastasia answers an ad in the personals with an exaggerated description of herself but soon runs into trouble when the unknown man turns up at a friend's wedding.
Anastasia's seventh-grade science project becomes almost more than she can handle, but her brother Sam, age three, and a bust of Freud, aid her nobly.
